Ms. Kucera's art students have been busy this semester making art in the service of others. Sculpture students created a recycled plastic bottle installation in the front hallway of the school, using approximately 600 plastic water and soda bottles that were recycled in the school recycling cans over one month's time. The sculpture, and signs within it, illustrate the small percentage (approximately 35%) of bottles recycled versus bottles sold in the school building. An installation is a temporary artwork, often in a public place, which draws attention and engages the viewer by altering the space. We hope that our sculpture, and posters around the school, helped encourage more students and staff to recycle their plastic bottles!Read more
For the past five years, Monument 5th graders have been conducting Mock Congressional Hearings to demonstrate understanding and identify key points of the United States Constitution. Students worked hard to prepare for this special opportunity to present their information on given topics from the Birth of Our Nation.
This year the panel of judges included former Secretary of State Sam Reed, Dr. Rich McBride, Superintendent of North Central Washington ESD, Mr. Jim Hemberry, Mayor of Quincy and Ms. Carole Carlton, Director of Stsudent Achievement for Quincy School District.
The Congressional Heaings were held on Thursday, May 30, and Friday, May 31, in the school gymnasium. Other students, staff members and parents enjoyed the opportunity to watch and listen to this special program. They were able to witness how the students of Monument have become experts on the United States Constitution.
Thank you to the 5th Grade Teachers of Monument Elementary for organizing and leading this event!

The state wrestling tournament is always hosted the 3rd weekend of February in the Tacoma Dome. This year was no different for the wrestling community, the difference came from the Jackrabbit wrestlers, friends, family members, coaches and community members that took over the dome and made it feel like home! Our wrestling teams (Guys & Girls) had an outstanding season. The entire season seemed to be a season of broken records and firsts. This all culminated with an amazing weekend at the Tacoma Dome to finish off the season in style!!! Click on the "Read More" link below for more details and photos.Read more
